A woman who has transformed sports opportunities for thousands of disabled people is to meet Prince Charles and Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, after receiving a special award for her work.
Sue Frett, of Martin’s Avenue in Epsom, founded the Surrey Special Olympics (SSO), the charity Reach Out Youth and Adult Disabilities, and has volunteered to improve the lives of disabled people, including her son Jonathan, 45, who was born with brain damage, for the past 40 years.
Mrs Frett has been selected as one of 60 Diamond Champions, in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year, from across the country and received the award for her outstanding volunteering work with disabled people over many years.
The awards were organised by the Women’s Royal Voluntary Service, and Prince Charles and his wife are patrons of the Diamond Champions campaign.
The 73-year-old attended a ceremony at the Sloane Club, in London, last Friday, October 19, along with 60 other nominees from the Eastern and South East region - from which just 10 were selected as Diamond Champions.
